We are walking 350 miles from New York City to Washington D.C. for a better world. Will you stand with us?
Stemming from a belief in universal human rights, the Long Walk for Freedom, Nature, and Love will raise awareness for climate change and global human rights violations. Too many human beings around the world face the appalling realities of enforced disappearances, torture, extrajudicial killings, and forced conversions. Amidst it all, those with the power to act stand by as global temperatures rise beyond the point of no return, sparking unprecedented fires, droughts, and massive storms.
We call for an end to these transgressions through this march. We walk for freedom from enforced disappearances, freedom from arbitrary arrest, freedom from torture, freedom from forced conversions, freedom from unjustifiable killings, and freedom from environmental destruction.
Stretching from New York City to Washington D.C. from April 7-29, the Long Walk will cross through five states: Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. Along the way, participants will meet with community members, human rights groups, and political leaders who wish to support the fight against climate change and human rights violations. The 350-mile march will end in Washington D.C. with a meeting between Long Walk participants and members of the U.S. Congress.
